As a Doctor Who fan its only fair that I watch and eventually love BBC’s Torchwood. It’s a darker show than DW and closer to what I would like the show to be like. More for adults who’ve invested 50 years hiding behind the sofa and watching Doctor after Doctor regenerate. I don’t expect the show to become ‘X’ rated but harder and darker wouldn’t hurt. The reason I mention Torchwood is that at the weekend I was lucky enough to meet Eve Myles who plays Gwen Cooper.
It’s always nice to meet people who you admire and in the case of Eve Myles she was the nicest person you could ever hope to meet. Very interested in what you had to say and I couldn’t have felt more welcome. What a contrast to ‘The Hoff ‘ who couldn’t have had more contempt for the fans if he tried. He could barely lift his head to say hello and was more interested in chatting to his friends than the people who were waiting to say hello. He was frankly rude.
As you can see, he’s looking old and past his best. Lets hope he goes for a slow run down the beach into obscurity.
